The integral role of social media champions

By Alexandra Reid

We have used the term “champion” many times on this blog to describe those risk-inclined individuals who become the essential drivers of progressive change within the commercialization ecosystem. Champions can wear many hats. We have described them as mentors, investors and, perhaps most importantly, advocates who take that leap of faith and make doors open at that critical juncture to snatch success from the jaws of failure.

In the process of creating and executing a social media marketing strategy to help bring technology to market, champions fall into two distinct categories:

  1. External champions of your technology who can be found, engaged and developed through social media.
  2. Internal champions of social media who advocate new tools and embrace enterprising tactics that allow their businesses to successfully compete within the social space.

  • Phil : I agree, but I think that the author missed one of the elephants in that room.. Those SR&ED claims are substantiated by technical people, but they are verified not by engineers, but to a large degree by.. BUREAUCRATS, indifferent officials. If an engineer/researcher want's to make a 'paper claim' and get back real money, it is not only very difficult for an official to check whether this claim is real expense on a real reasearch risk or just a legal loop-hole to cut the taxes, but it's also not quite motivating for that official to do so - he is not a professional in that field, so for him the main thing is that the field form looks like it is supposed to look. So the system can just produce lots of houses of cards on the one hand, and to breed the culture of fictitious engineering and research on the other hand. So the whole story is not only about marketers but also about those very technical people who make and spruce up those claims.
